So last week when I Emma was on the radio, we (bffw, her co-host and I) had a discussion about the movie ‘Hot Tub Time Machine’. Highbrow stuff I know. Anyway, after admitting that I have indeed watched this shining example of inanity, Co-Host asked the obvious question: why?
Why? Well, the simple answer is John Cusack (the more complicated answer involves the 1980s and nostalgia and music memory … if you were in high school in the 80s you understand.)
When pressed, I cleverly expanded that answer by saying that John Cusack is cute, but given time to think I’ve come up with a more complete answer. I mean who couldn’t love the romantic Lloyd Dobler from ‘Say Anything’ or the conflicted Roy Dillon from ‘The Grifters’?
But I have to say that my favorite Cusack movie –actually one of my favorite movies period- is ‘Grosse Pointe Blank’. John Cusack, Minnie Driver, Joan Cusack, 80s music … it’s just hard to have more fun than you will while watching this movie. Go rent/buy/download it now. You’ll thank me.
I’m pretty sure “Well, he’s cute,” pretty much wraps up my witticisms from my time in the radio spotlight, but I’m also sure with a few advance topics I could be very entertaining. I mean really, it’s hard to keep a born sm*rt*ss reigned in for any length of time. Just ask my husband. Or John Cusack!
